“The AmazingWriting Race” 
2013 Spring Writing Marathon and Celebration
for Students
and Teachers

Wednesday, March 27, 2013
Oklahoma City Zoo
The Oklahoma Writing
Project invites you to attend “The Amazing Writing Race.”  This year participants will experience the
animals through various writing activities and listening to zoo
specialists.   Each teacher may bring 5 students per adult, all grades, K-6. Parents and student teachers are welcome, too.  Spaces are limited please register today!
Students and teachers
will be challenged to write narrative, opinion or informative pieces while
racing around the zoo looking for writing prompts.  All writing activities will be aligned to
Common Core State Standards.  Oklahoma
Writing Project Teacher Consultants will be placed at each writing challenge
checkpoint to guide participants.   Teachers will accompany their students as they race around the zoo
attempting to complete all writing prompts. 
In the afternoon, everyone will attend a joint session to
have a read around.  Students and
teachers will share pieces written during the race.  Come be a part of this exciting day!
Students and teachers
will need to bring a sack lunch.  Due to
all the writing prompts during the day, you will stop to eat lunch between writing
challenges.  (During March, many of the
usual concession stands are closed at the zoo. 
Bringing your own sack lunch is recommended.)  We will be outside all day, be sure to dress
appropriately.  Students and teachers may
bring clipboards to assist with writing. 
If there is inclement weather, you will receive an email by noon on Tuesday,
March 26.  Please make sure you supply a
valid email address.
